Bought and brewed the all grain. This is a phenomenal beer. I just recieved my second kit. This will become a standard brew in my house

I brewed this per request to be served at a wedding reception. I brewed the AG version. I have never seen so many hops in my life. It turned out amazingly smooth for the amount of hops that were used. It was a hit at the wedding reception (keg floated). Expensive recipe, but I may just do it again in the future since it turned out so great and was so well received.

I'm a huge fan of anything Russian River brews, and I made it out to the brewery last fall. Pliny the Elder is probably my favorite beer of all time. I brewed the extract version of this kit - didn't change a thing or add any ingredients. Sat in primary for 2 weeks, then secondary for about 2 weeks, then kegged it. A few days later it was ready to go. I was able to find the REAL Pliny the Elder on tap at a bar, so I was able to compare it to the original pretty accurately, and it's very close. The flavors and aroma were spot on. The only difference that I could tell right away was that my kit version came out very cloudy - didn't clear up at all. It really is an incredible kit and makes an incredible hop bomb brew. I had a major problem kegging this beer due to the fact that the kit had so many hops in it. My corney keg fittings kept getting clogged. Make sure you strain your wort, or use hop bags with this kit...hopefully you won't have the trouble that I did, but it was worth every drop. The ABV was spot-on at about 7.5%. I will definitely brew this again and again. Once you drink a pint of this beer you will be ruined. No other double IPA comes close.

brewed this last January, bottled and ready to drink by May 2010. Could not save this stuff as it has been the best IPA I have brewed to date and I have done over 15 different IPAs (and some of those several times over). This is great stuff to me and my brew partner. It is a little too pricey but still a keeper that ALL IPA lovers must try before wasting $ on piss-ant watered down, no hopped, mislabeled IPAs.

Wow! Excellent kit!! I will definitely be brewing this again. I've never had the pleasure of trying the real Pliny but if it's anything like this clone it's definitely all it's cracked up to be!!!

Brewed this a couple months ago. Did not carbonate! Tastes great, just no bubbles. Only brew out of 14 I have made since March that had this problem. Tired yeast, I guess.

I brewed this a few months ago and it's one of the best beers if not the best extract beer I have ever made this beer is great....I since have brewed it again will be ready in 2 weeks. I tried to find this on AHB and cannot find it..what happened?...

This is a great beer. I've had the real thing and this is dead on. I brewed all grain and pitched a single vial of WLP001. I skipped the secondary and went from primary to keg in about two weeks. This was my first attempt to keg and I force carbed it and drank it in three days. It needs clearing up a little, but the taste was great from the first glass. Fireworks at the Hollywood Bowl was great with a growler of my very own Pliney!

Brewed a 5 gallon all grain kit with no deviations from the recipe and I would have to say that it is one of the best beers I have brewed this year. I would recommend letting it condition in the bottle for at least a month as the more this conditions, the better it is. It had a very pronounced bitterness after opening the first bottle at 3 weeks, but over time it has mellowed and deepened in flavor and mouthfeel. Even though it is expensive I'd say give it a try as there is a reason for all of the hype...all of the 14 plus ounces of hops really add up to one incredible hop bomb of a beer!

I have never been able to try the real Pliny, but I do know that this recipe is great. The hop aroma, well balanced malt, gorgeous color make this definitely worth doing. Austin comes through again with amazing recipes. I will definitely do this all grain again.
